A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two persons explaining how their marriage will work, and what is expected from each partner. Couples look to "prenups" as a way to resolve issues, many of them financial, before they marry and the issues become disputes.
Prenuptial Agreement Questions To Ask
Prenuptial agreements address such questions as:
- What are each party's current assets and debts?
- Will these assets and debts be kept separate from the marriage?
- Will assets of the new marriage belong to children from previous marriages?
- Are both parties expected to work?
- Who will be responsible for paying bills and taxes?
- How will household money management work?
